All of us have been waiting for YellowSn0w to unlock firmware 2.2.1, and later firmware 3.0.
Now I have a good news to all of us, MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team has finally announced on his Twitter. iPhone OS 3.0 will be unlockable, and MuscleNerd will be doing a live demo of the yellowsn0w 3.0 unlock on the iPhone Dev Team blog and his twitter feed.
On 2nd April 2009, Apple announce that they are releasing iPhone firmware 3.0 Beta 2. And on the next day (3rd April 2009), RebelSim announce that their RebelSim v61 is still able to unlock this version of firmware and baseband (iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 4.22.01.). This is a good news to those who already got their RebelSim, or those that going to purchase it.
As of now, RebelSim v61 is able to unlock:
- iPhone Firmware 2.2, Baseband 2.28.00 (You don’t need RebelSim, Since Yellowsn0w can do the job for free.)
- iPhone Firmware 2.2.1, Baseband 2.30.03 (You need this, or any other turbosim. No way to unlock 2.2.1 without them, as of today.)
- iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 04.22.01 (I have no heard anything out there can do this, except this one.)
So, If you are thinking of upgrading to Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, AND you successed on the jailbreak with the tool that is mentioned in previous post. You will need this RebelSim v61 to unlock your phone to work with your Mobile Service Provider simcard.
